Black Hawk Down star Tom Sizemore has reportedly told the FBI he knows what REALLY happened to the rappers – and he’ll wear a wire to prove it
Actor Tom Sizemore has reportedly made sensational claims to the FBI that Tupac and Biggie Smalls’ shooting deaths were arranged by jailed record producer Suge Knight .
The Black Hawn Down star is said to have made the bombshell claims to agents, and said that he’d even be willing to wear a wire to help them finally crack the case.
Sizemore says in leaked documents, including a transcript of a 2004 interview with the FBI, that he met Knight at an AA meeting and came to learn the truth behind the deaths of the rappers.
According to The Sun , the actor revealed that it was during a meeting in a nightclub in 2001 that a gang member named ‘8-ball’ told him Knight had arranged for Biggie and Tupac to be murdered.
Tupac was infamously shot dead in Las Vegas in 1996, while Knight was sat next to him in a car.
Notorious BIG – aka Biggie Smalls – was gunned down less than a year later in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles. It happened in the height of the East Coast vs West Coast hip hop rivalry plaguing the city.
The newspaper reports that during Sizemore’s interview with the FBI – conducted at a Fat Burger restaurant in LA – the actor reveals he knows another gang member who may be willing to pass on information to the FBI.
He goes on to say he wants to help the agents “take down” a crystal meth warehouse run by the Mexican Mafia, claiming he wants revenge after his teenage sister got hooked on the drug.
The documents say: “Sizemore stated his stepfather was a Detroit police office and admires the work of law enforcement officers.
“Because his 19-year-old sister recently was hooked on crystal meth, Sizemore will wear a wire or provide any information to help solve the Biggie Smalls murder as well as lead the FBI to take down the largest crystal meth house in California, which he stated as being run by the Mexican Mafia out of a warehouse.”
Knight, who worked with many rappers through his Death Row Records, has long been shrouded in suspicion, with some believing he killed Tupac because the star wanted to leave his record label.
There’s also a theory that Knight later had Biggie killed to draw attention away from Tupac’s murder.
He was always denied having any involvement in either of the murders.
Knight is currently serving a 28-year prison sentence over the death of a man in a hit and run in 2015.
Sizemore’s interview was just one document of an FBI case file released by movie producer Don Sikorski, who has been researching Biggie’s murder.
It was created by the former head of the FBI’s LA field office, Phil Carson, who has since retired.
